They ran, they jumped, they kicked, and they even tossed at Mariposa Elementary School’s first kindergarten track and field event. Over 40 JK and SK students participated in the event today (June 10) at Mariposa ES. The kindergarten students ran races, kicked balls, tossed balls, and jumped into sand pits all while their family and friends cheered them on. Older students and teachers even took time out of their day to sit along the sidelines and cheer on the young athletes. It’s amazing to watch our fearless kindergarten students compete without a care in the world and a smile on their face – we truly can learn a lot from these young students.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of a team of students who were timers, measurers, recorders, and ball receivers.
